Dublin-based Hiking and Mountaineering Club

With over 250 members, and 4 hike levels each week to choose from.

About Us

We have about 300 members, mainly from the Dublin region but also from all corners of the country. As we are a mainly Dublin-based club, we do most of our walking in the Wicklow and Dublin mountains area, but we also take regular trips to other parts of Ireland.

New to Hiking?

We’ve all had to start somewhere!

We have members who’ve hiked and climbed all over the world, but at some stage in their lives they were the newbies who turned up with less than perfect gear and a slight tinge of nervousness. We love introducing new people to hiking, and we pride ourselves on our efforts to welcome new members and give them the training and encouragement they need.

Up for a Challenge?

We organise the annual 33km long Blackstairs challenge walk.¬† Which usually takes place in late May each year. This is one of Ireland’s truly spectacular challenge walks.
